Hi, Welcome all on Fast French Learning, the blog to Learn and Improve your French 🇫🇷 😀
Maybe you already know the application Memrise (for ios, ipad and iphone). It is a application to memorize informations that covers a huge variety of topics, languages is on of them. You review the words you learn until you get them in your long term memory. This is very simple. And everyone, and this is normal, have some difficulties to learn several words and grammar rules in your target language. It is nice resource, especially to learn new words. You are going to find the official Memrise (for ios – ipad – iphone) courses. You are going to find as well the courses which are created by the users themselves. But I bring your attention to the fact that the official Memrise courses are better because they contain audios and videos with a good quality, but the content made by the users is good. It is the case, for example, when you want to get more words.
To begin, you can click on courses. You have all the languages that you can learn, you are going to find as well others subjects like arts and literature, maths and science,… So, how does it work ? So you need to click on the three dots, and you can see all the options. For example, we are going to learn some new words. The French word Bonjour, it means « hello ». So, you are going to see the word in the French language and then the word in the English language, and then the literal translations. Then, a second sentence pops up, this second sentence is « what’s new », which means in the French languae, in the unformal language « quoi de neuf ? ». It is a tool that is very easy to use. The application makes you review the words you have just learnt and those you have learnt longer ago, to check if you still have them in your long term memory. You can use the audio as well, to check how to pronounce it, it is very easy to use.
There is as well a difficult words area. This is pretty much the same as the classic review. The difference is, is when you miss a word, you wrote it, you spell it wrong,… the application is going to put the word in this place, so it means that you have to focus on this word more than the others words.
This application works well, it is easy to use.
What are the pros and cons ?
- This application is free.
- It works well as a platform to memorize. The spaced repetition system works well. It is well designed.
- The official courses + the content made by the users = a lot of content. You always will have content to study.
- There is a premium version but this version is not so different from the free one.
- Memrise is not enough to learn a language. It is nice and useful as an extra resource to improve some elements of your target language. But it is not the best way to learn the French language completely.
I suggest you to use several application when you are learning a foreign language. Each one has the good and bad points, and you can use them the way you want. It is a long journey to learn a foreign language, so the more application you use the better it is.
Here is a review :
« It is a really good application. The « robot » that says the words sounds very human, it says the words with a female and male voices. One very good thing that I like is that you can watch videos of French native people saying the words. So you can watch the video until you get everything of what it is said in it. It helped me a lot. The interface is easy to use, it is intuitive. Youc an easily practice on specific things, focusing on listening on spelling, on writing, on reading,… Now I have a better level in the japanese language. I really like this application. One thing that I love is that you can download the courses, so you can use them offline. I can study wherever I want. For me this application is better than the others ones. I strongly suggest you to use it ! »
